After considering the advice provided by both the Welsh and UK Governments regarding the outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) I have taken the decision that as of today and until further notice the constituency office will be closed to the public in order to safeguard constituents and staff. Constituents will still be able to raise their concerns with me and seek support regarding any issue as the office will operate in the following manner for the foreseeable future:

All enquiries will be undertaken by telephone during office hours on 01639 870779 or via email [email protected] and we will respond as quickly as possible. There will be no community drop in advice surgeries during the month of April and this will be reviewed on a monthly basis.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact my office in the ways mentioned above.

David Rees, AM for Aberavon
